Original Comic Art Sale – Coming soon!

I’m going to be selling the original art for these three covers from Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes very soon. Right now the plan is to do it by way of eBay auction. Anyone out there have any alternative suggestions?

This is a warm up for selling some original covers and interior pages from my Young Justice run, so I’m looking for the optimal system…

Happy Colorist Appreciation Day

Young Justice #11 – Cover Color

It’s one of those things that makes you ask “Who DECIDES this stuff?” In response to colorist Jordie Bellaire’s tumblr post this morning, today has been deemed Colorist Appreciation Day on Twitter. Or, since it’s on Twitter, #coloristappreciationday.

I color most of my work outside of comics myself, but most of my work in the comics field is drawn by me but colored by another artist. And make no mistake, coloring can make or break a piece of art. I’ve benefited from good coloring and suffered terrible coloring.

As an example of how good coloring can *benefit* artwork, I direct your attention to my gallery of Young Justice covers featuring the colors of Zac Atkinson. You can see his work as well as my uncolored line art for each cover. You can find Zac on Twitter at @zacatkinson, and his website is

So thanks to Zac and the other great colorists I’ve gotten to work with over the years! Appreciate colorists today!

CONvergence 2013 is not yet imminent…

CONvergence 2012 is over, and my thanks go out to everyone who helped make it such a fabulous success yet again. The metrics are that total memberships rose to the staggering number of 5,980, with a little over 5,600 members actually managing to attend and occupy the building (AKA the “warm body count”).

The true measure of the convention’s success any year isn’t in those numbers or even in the money that is generated for our non-profit parent organization Convergence Events, but rather in the anecdotal stories of the experiences had by our members. Here’s one official photo gallery, but there are plenty more out there if you search for CVG2012 or #CVG2012. That #CVG2012 hashtag will also lead you to an epic number of CONvergence-related tweets on Twitter. If you’re wanting to get over the post-con blues by immersing yourself in all things CONvergence, the following links should help:

And finally, the epic video teaser for CONvergence 2013

So for my last batch of images for CONvergence 2012, here’s a little more artwork I did for the convention this year.

Souvenir Program Guide cover

Souvenir Program Guide cover

Here was the cover art for the Souvenir Program Guide. The Kill Bill image seemed like a nice alternative to the omnipresent Wonder Woman imagery for our 2012 “Wonder Women” theme, and I knew there was going to be a Kill Bill-themed sketch at the Opening Ceremony. I didn’t realize there was ALSO a Kill Bill sketch being organized by a different group for the Closing Ceremony. Maybe that’s Overkill Bill.

Mark 2 as Ellie Driver

Mark 2 as Elle Driver

As a companion piece to that cover featuring CONvergence mascot Connie, I drew Connie’s evil sister Connie Mark 2 as Elle Driver from the same film. I don’t know if anyone else was as amused as I was by the eye patch over the Cylon eye, but it cracks ME up…

CVG 2012 Grid Cover

CVG 2012 Grid Cover

This was the cover art for the pocket-sized programming book, which presents our programming schedule in condensed grid form. It’s cleverly referred to as “The Grid,” and it’s a running gag that I try to do cover art for this each year that both reflects the theme and has some sort of “grid” reference as well. This year we went for the Ms. Pac-Man treatment. That’s a Connie-fied Ms. Pac-Man chasing around the maze with Mark 2-style Ghosts.

CVG 2013 Ad

CVG 2013 Ad

And finally, here’s the ad for CONvergence 2013, which will have the theme of British Invasion. I managed to pack quite a few references in here, but I still didn’t manage to include The Prisoner, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, and so many others! Well I’ve got a year to come up with something to work them into!

Now, back to work on Young Justice!
